    Business to business relationships for meeting planning

    stokestrip Wayfarer
      Is it better when partnering with another business to have a contract drawn or is a mutual understanding good enough? I own a travel agency and I want to gain some corporate clients that do off site meetings at sea, but I would like them to exclusively work with me. Would I be too forward in getting them to sign a contract stating that or should I just allow my work to speak for itself? The contract would state that they agree to only work with my agency for this meeting and that they have priority when they contact my office or send an email. They would be free to do business elsewhere after this meeting, but they will not be allowed to take my current planning ideas and give them to another agency nor have me do a lot of work and they take their business somewhere else. Should I maybe instead of a contract require a sizeable non refundable deposit that is applied to their reservation if they reserve the meeting, but pays the agency for work completed if they cancel? Which would your company find fair and feasible? Is anyone interested in doing thsi for their business and wants more information?
